After his graduation from the Royal Academy of Antwerp in 1979, Martin Margiela founded Maison Martin Margiela in 1988. Often referred to as iconoclast, avant-garde and experimental, the Maison expresses its creativity through recycling, transformation and reinterpretation - like a unique proposal defying all laws and rules. The collections gather several lines of products: from ‘Artisanal’ pieces hand-made in the Paris atelier of the Maison to timeless classics, from radical accessories to casual clothes, from fashion to interior design, each of them complementing one another to compose a whole universe, way beyond a mere style.

INTRODUCING THE HÉRITAGE COLLECTION
In giving classic tokens of love and lineage a new twist, Maison Martin Margiela's "Héritage" collection, a new line of Fine Jewellery inspired by traditional, emblematic family jewels, rewrites sentimental and ancestral codes, infusing them with an air of mystery, versatility and freedom. The collection recasts the conventional symbols of wedding and heirloom pieces, blending uniqueness with luxury in an unconventional way.
The Héritage Collection is divided into themes of: "Alliance", "Chevalière" and "Pompadour"
A split ring appears unfinished. It formalizes the adaptable nature of the ties that bind, and rewrites the chapters that take place between an initial hello, the waiting and the first signs of love in all its complexity. This ring outlines the coincidences and vagaries that punctuate a love story. An incomplete circle. A moment suspended in time between a first meeting and marriage. Unsoldered and free.
The unified coat of arms and family crest revisited. A pure, sleek signet ring, split in half. A gentleman’s ring divided, a sidelong reconstruction of house codes and ancestry that transforms heritage by giving it a new twist. Ironically, this ring plays down history by accentuating its symbols and traditions, before reinventing them.
Sterling Silver Split Bracelet
An heirloom piece. A divided, disunited jewel that shakes free of the inheritance aesthetic, moving beyond it. A symbol of kinship that incorporates independence, playing with conventional concepts of family and tradition. These pieces bring a twist to family lore, making way for dizzying possibilities and a chance to revise history. A deconstructed symbol that quiets the ancestral tendencies usually inscribed in precious stones, aligning lineage with the uniqueness of a contemporary jeweled piece.
